Dear Self,

I just sat for two hours and sewed the bottom hem of my new shirt whilst listening to an audio book.   

I felt the practice of making my clothes come back to me. For a while now it has eluded me. I’ve felt bored or even frustrated by the idea of hand sewing.  

But just now it felt like a luxury again.

A pleasure.

A small gift that I can give myself as a way of refilling the well.

The thing that changed was I stopped worrying (once again) about the finished thing being perfect (it’s handmade - that’s the whole point!) and just enjoyed the process of sewing.

It’s nice to be back.

Love

Luke
